  • Prince William, Duchess Kate, and their three children—Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis—are reportedly vacationing at the Isles of Scilly, off the southwest coast of England.

  • The quick getaway trip holds sentimental value for their Cambridges since it's a vacation spot where a young Prince William and Prince Harry would visit with their parents as young boys.

The Cambridges are partaking in a low-key family vacation to mark the nearing end of summer.

According to People, Prince William and Duchess Kate have visited the Isles of Scilly, a beloved vacation spot off the southwest corner of England, with their three children. The beach town holds a special place in the Duke of Cambridge's heart. It was a location he frequented with his brother Prince Harry and their parents Princess Diana and Prince Charles when they were young boys. This getaway is reportedly one of the first family vacations the Cambridges have taken together since quarantining at their Anmer Hall estate at the start of the coronavirus pandemic. Though quarantine restrictions have eased in recent weeks across the U.K. and social distanced local travel is allowed, the country has not fully eradicated the virus yet. Prime Minister Boris has halted lifting further social restrictions due to the U.K. still experiencing a rise in cases nationwide.

Fellow tourists reportedly spotted both Prince William and Kate Middleton enjoying a bike ride together, per the Daily Mirror. The activity was a nod to vintage photos of a young Prince William and Prince Harry bike riding with their parents around the isles in 1989.

The quick trip was a break from a rigorous round of royal duties from the Duke of Cambridge. Willam has been actively promoting his Heads Up mental health campaign amid the FA Cup final, coinciding with his new initiative to promote the need for mental health awareness in the soccer world.
